This September, there seem to be too many long weekends at our disposal, to utilise efficiently or to laze away. While long weekends bring with them promises of productivity, more often than not, they end up being spent in bed.
DU beat brings you ways of making your long weekend a memorable one.
- Plan a trip to a nearby hill station
Delhi boasts of being just a few hours’ drives away from some of the most quaint and beautiful hill stations in the country, like Lansdowne, Dalhousie, and Kasol etc. Make the most of this opportunity, get your gang onboard, stuff your backpack and head out on a road trip. It will help you get a time off from the hustle bustle of the city and would surely be a respite from Delhi’s humid weather.
- Catch up with some old friends
While we all know that college and work hardly ever gives us the time to social, it is equally important to nurture our old friendships. Meeting up with old school friends might just give you an opportunity to rewind and reminisce of much simpler times. It works just as good as a time turner!
- Head out to Old Delhi
Getting lost in the streets of Daryaganj and Chandni Chowk, gorging on paranthas and kebabs and visiting the iconic Jama Masjid and Lal Qila; the list just seems to go on. Make a day out of it and explore Old Delhi in all its glory.
- Netflix and Chill
This one might just seem like an ideal (and the most common) way of spending your weekend and it sure doesn’t hurt to watch all the newly released shows or even some old ones for that matter. If you don’t have a Netflix subscription, fret not, the dark web is filled with crevices with sites that have almost all kinds of shows to offer.
- Finish unfinished business
It might strike out as a tad bit serious, but honestly, it can be as simple as completing that assignment that was due last week, or a book, or a painting you haven’t touched in the last two weeks. It might just help you begin from scratch.
While there seems to be no fixed formula on how to spend your weekend, it never hurts to strive for personal fulfillment and make memories along the way. Best of luck figuring out your weekend.
